On 28 september 2018 on SRC Kale, Scotish band Texas will have a concert.
Texas are a Scottish pop rock band from Glasgow. They were founded in 1986 by Johnny McElhone (formerly of the bans Altered Images nd Hipsway) and Sharleen Spiteri on lead vocals. Texas made their performing debut in March 1988 at the University of Dundee. They took their name from the 1984 Wim Wenders movie Paris, Texas.
The band released their debut album Southside in 1989, along with the debut single "I Don't Want a Lover" which was an international hit, reaching the top ten in the UK and other high charting positions in Europe.
The band's fortunes changed in 1997 with the release of their White on Blonde album which entered the UK Albums Chart at number one and became their biggest seller. To date it has been certified six-times platinum in the UK. Follow up album, The Hush (1999) was also successful, debuting at number one on the UK album charts and certified triple platinum. The band's Greatest Hits album, released in 2000, was another big seller, again debuting at number one and also being certified six-times platinum. Texas would go on to release a further two studio albums, Careful What You Wish For in 2003, and Red Book in 2005, both of which were certified gold in the UK.
As of 2017, Texas' sales were 40 million records and they have had thirteen UK top ten singles, three UK number one albums and eight UK top ten albums, including their ninth studio album, Jump on Board which was released in May 2017.
Jazzy Jeff is one of those DJs whose name first comes to mind when you think of hip-hop and fun at the same time. This legend of hip-hop culture was born 53 years ago in Philadelphia, where at the age of 10 she first encounters the magic of the gramophone. Because of his youth, at the beginning of his career he worked as "bathroom dj", entertaining the audience in local clubs, when resident djs went to a break in the toilet. This was not a problem for him, because he used every moment to work on his technique. She says to herself that it was precisely this work ethic in her youth that was crucial to become a pioneer of the "transformer" and "chirp" scratch techniques, which we first encountered in 1998 in Will Smith's Gettin` Jiggy Wit It mega hit. In his 10 year career, the duo releases five studio albums, and will remain remembered for being the first rap artists to win the Grammy Award (1989). After the breakup of the band (Jeff and Smith are still very good friends and working on joint projects), he dedicates himself to his production company "A Touch of Jazz", which helps in developing the careers of many quality music names including Eminem , Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild, Jewel, The Roots, Talib Kweli, Rhymefest and others. In addition to them, during his career he collaborated with De La Soul, Dj Cash Money, Method Man, CL Smooth, Big Daddy Kane and Raheem Devaughn.
The event will be held on October 22 / Monday (23rd is a non-working day) at the MCC dancing hall starting at 9 pm (doors open at 20: 30h)
